Whose Son is He? The victory of David over Goliath

David Gooding

Just as David’s victory divided opinion and forced people to decide where their loyalty lay, so we must face Jesus Christ’s claim to the loyalty of our hearts towards him after his great victory.

Synopsis

Many people know the story of David and Goliath, but what does it tell us about the character of a good ruler and the way that God himself wins our hearts? When David defeated the giant Goliath, he made it clear that his apparent weakness would show everyone that the Lord was at work, and that the victory did not depend on who was the bigger man in the fight. Here we see the foreshadowing of David’s great descendant, Jesus the Messiah, who would use what looked foolish and weak to the world to defeat even greater enemies. But just as David’s victory divided opinion and forced people to decide where their loyalty lay, so we, after the cross and the resurrection, must face Jesus Christ’s claim to the loyalty of our hearts towards him after his great victory.

Recorded in Australia, 1992.
